What's included?

The price includes all of your utility bills, basic contents insurance and inclusive travel on the BROOKESbus network (BROOKESkey account required). Free Wi-Fi is provided to students across most Oxford Brookes University sites. Partners living in the studios who are not also full-time students would not be eligible for the inclusive travel pass.

A complimentary internet connection in the hall is provided by WiFinity and whilst every effort will be made to ensure the connection is stable, the University does not accept liability for any loss of connection due to technical problems.

Studio flats are reserved for couples. Please note: if you will be bringing your partner but they are not going to be a full-time student (either because they are studying part-time or are not a student at all), they will be eligible to pay council tax. The full-time student will need to complete a council tax exemption form as your status as a student will affect how much council tax your household is charged. You may be charged more if you do not declare your status as a student.


You'll pay your rent via the Accommodation Portal. Use our hall instalment calculator to view the payment schedules available to you. More information can be found on the accommodation finance page.

Your first rent payment will be due in early October.
